The World We Make with the Dalai Lama

How might the world look roughly 15 years from now if we choose well-being today? While economic prosperity has generally increased, why haven’t happiness and well-being?

How can we decrease the costs related to depression and stress-related disorders that are projected to double to $6 trillion by 2030? How can we learn to be happy, to be kind, and to be grateful?

Along with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the Center is gathering world leaders in science, health care and media to alter humanity’s course by sharing how we can cultivate well-being in ourselves, our communities and the world.

  1. Can we ignore who are the main international actors who, with money, international policies, ways of life, disseminating consumerism and forcibly imposing their businesses, are moving towards establishing a world of inequality? Is it enough only talking and stressing the value of change through well-being, love and compassion? Can the nature of capitalism be left out of this conference?
    ¿Se puede desconocer quiénes son los principales actores internacionales que con dinero, políticas internacionales, formas de vida, diseminando el consumismo e imponiendo a la fuerza sus negocios, avanzan estableciendo un mundo de inequidad? ¿Alcanza con hacer toda una conferencia acentuando el valor del cambio a través del bienestar, del amor y la compasión? ¿Puede quedar fuera de esta conferencia la naturaleza del capitalismo?

  2. What an inspiring dialogue! I am a Mindfulness practitioner and a Public Health Consultant in the UK & have retired from my permanent post in the NHS to make a move to spread the message locally and in my home country Sri Lanka. It has given me less stress, more happiness and inspiration to walk on this path together with others involved in my journey to promote well being and peace..

    What Dr Richie and his team are doing with HE Dalai Lama are amazing and your work have inspired us by providing scientific evidence and most importantly being generous in sharing knowledge free of charge, which are so valuable. I am sure there are so many who are silently learning from these programmes to change minds of their communities.
    I have read Rick Hanson's books and viewed his programmes & has been in touch with him which has initiated my interest in this field.
    May you all continue to have the strength & commitment to carry on this global task to safeguard our future generations! Pls continue to share any new developments

  3. The Dalai Lama is in his position because of a destiny even he doesn't believe in, himself.

    He was a baby who just happened to grow into one of the best men in the world… or was he a product of his environment?

    Either way, we're so lucky to have him.

  4. how come all you people ignore the real history of why he is treated as his own country's criminal? Yes, I have to say what we hear from his speech is beautiful and absolutely right, but what he did to Tibetan was so unforgivable and when he ruled Tibet that was the darkest time in the world. Please look at the history!!!!!! Wake up People!!!!!

  5. watched whole and watched again from 54 min to hear HH the Dalai Lama's talk. Thank you for sharing this wonderful video. It made me very happy and reminded me that I should be more kind, positive and generous to start from individual. Thank you again.

  6. DALAI LAMA: He is wrong according my opinion , he says at 1:26 "the problems on this world were created by all of us" and "praying is not too much import" ,, what ????. Main and remarkable problems are responsible of few people (kings, presidents) they sometimes make good/bad decisions against the people. Jesus podia leer el corazon y pensamiento de las personas, al Dalai lama le tienen que traducir y hasta poner las "palabras" en la boca para comunicar ideas.

  7. What a helpful process, I have begun to practice this and am aware of the skills it offers me, I feel growth in patience, awareness, sense of peace and strength, ability to look at issues before me and find increased capacity to choose healthy pathways to solutions that affect me and others.

  8. My dream is to bring together all knowledge and souls in order to show and act with love to all in-need children in the world: orphans, sexually abused children and children who are traffiked.All those organisations, and there are a lot of them, should unite in their efforts to give new lives to children who are victims all over the world. The first step should be to create a network, logistically united in order to share every institution experiences . A huge network could facilitate exchange of information , experience and as an ultimate goal, spread love all over the unhappy children. Maybe somebody reads this post and is powerful enough to launch such an amazing project.

  9. "Negative Emotions and how to overcome them" may have been one the most life changing book I ever read, so I was really looking forward to seeing this video and find the spirit live! Tank you Healthy Minds Team

  10. Thank you to all who made this event possible and for it to be shared with so many who couldn't be there in person… Such a powerful message, so simple and yet, not always easy to do… grateful to have watched this.

  11. I am struggling to articulate how I feel after watching this. The Dalai Lama's capacity to connect with people was truly touching. Love and compassion is the way. Thank you for sharing this event with us.

  12. Such a wonderful event. Both informative and inspirational. The world is a better place because of your wisdom and compassion, as well as scientific inquiry. Thank you for all of you work.
